The Green Blue is the environmental awareness initiative developed by the RYA and British Marine
The Green Blue is a UK wide programme created by British Marine and the Royal Yachting Association in 2005 to enable the UK recreational boating sector to decrease its impact on the environment by:
- Raising awareness amongst industry and users
- Reducing harmful discharges
- Reducing environmental disturbance
- Encouraging sustainable choices
The aim of the project is to work towards promoting a sustainable boating community which subsequently will save money, avoid red tape and safeguard the waters and habitats for the future.
The Green Blue also supports clubs and training centres by helping them understand and comply with the increasing amounts of environmental legislation affecting their operations. The Green Blue website contains a broad spectrum of information including tried and tested reports on environmentally sound products, where you can get them and even some offers for RYA and BM members.
